Murder suspects Chris Obure and bodyguard Robert Ouko Bodo and who are accused in the murder of the late Kelvin Ombati Omwenga will spend more nights in the police cells despite being granted bail earlier today.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations ( DCI) has clarified that the measly Shs 50, 000 bail granted to the duo was for the four counts they were charged with under the Firearms Act at Milimani Law Courts.
In today’s ruling Obure has been charged with the offense of failing to secure his firearm while Ouko was separately charged with a count of being in possession of a firearm without a license.

The police say that Josue was in constant communication with the suspects before and after the killing.
